Call to Worship [Based on Psalm 1]
There is Instruction here, that calls us.
Instruction like a river, and like a tree planted by a river.
Let us delight in it;
Let us drink deep from it;
Let us be transformed by it;
Let us worship God!
1 Happy are those
who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or take the path that sinners tread,
or sit in the seat of scoffers;
2 but their delight is in the law of the HOLY ONE,
and on God’s law they meditate day and night.
3 They are like trees
planted by streams of water,
which yield their fruit in its season,
and their leaves do not wither.
In all that they do, they prosper.
4 The wicked are not so,Psalm 1
but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
6 for the HOLY ONE watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
